CAM Module Offers Performance and Automation Enhancements

SPRING Technologies has announced the latest version of its NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS software. "The new version sets a groundbreaking benchmark for comprehensive control of the machining process, allying ease of use, flexibility and automation to build the factory of the future," said a company spokesperson.

SPRING has focused its R&D on optimizing the performance of NCSIMUL 4CAM, the CAM add-on module. "Based on SPRING's expertise in the field, NCSIMUL 4CAM 2017 brings users more efficient processes and integrates its best practice. With the new version of NCSIMUL 4CAM, manufacturers now have a decision-making tool that is reliable, flexible, secured and automated for selecting the production resources they want to deploy," said the spokesperson.

New features of Version 2017 of NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS and the NCSIMUL 4CAM module include:

  • New probing strategies with checking and measurement of intermediary rough stocks. A user benefit is automatic compensation, taking into account tool wear during machining, where applicable.
  • Support for turning after milling for one-click NC machine turnaround. User benefits include automatic reprogramming for all NC tool and machine changes, delivering flexibility and timesavings for CAM programmers and workshop scheduling.
  • The OPTITOOL option is built into NCSIMUL 4CAM 2017, enabling automation and optimization, especially all rapid motion, with graphic analysis, enabling quick before/after comparison of improvements. This provides users with one-click timesaving on each single machining cycle.
  • The NCSIMUL TOOL cutting tool management with 3-D definitions, attachments and cutting conditions has been enriched, standardized and stored by material, machine and operation. User benefits include operational timesaving on project go-live and capitalized best practices for cutting conditions and automated reuse.
  • One-click project update (phase calculation, simulation and ISO code restart, etc.) and phase export/import to exchange project information with other customer sites or external partners. User benefits include enhanced inter-company collaboration with sub-contractors, suppliers and customers, covering all or part of a project, enabling data exchange and securing the whole project.
  • Automatic performance analysis of the assembly for 5-axis NC machines; automatic graphic detection of machining risk zones and less than optimal cutting conditions. These allow automatic prediction of non-quality risks for 5-axis machining (surface condition, finishing).
  • Three new CAM programs have been added to the list of Workpackages available with NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS 2017: Alphacam, CATIA, Cimatron, Creo, Edgecam, ESPRIT, FeatureCAM, GibbsCAM, hyperMILL Mastercam, NX, PowerMILL and TopSolid'Cam.

Gilles Battier, CEO of SPRING Technologies, said, "We have developed a product that is truly unique on the market. Ours is effectively the only approach that uses data from the workshop to deliver maximum productivity for NC machine tools, cutting costs and factoring in the four key parameters that set the cost price of a part: machine cost, material cost, cutting tool cost and programming/workshop costs. It is our job to continue developing NCSIMUL SOLUTIONS and its NCSIMUL 4CAM module to offer our customers the very best, bringing them tools that will deliver the extra competitive edge they need."
